What’s so great about April? A better question might be to ask what isn’t great about April. This month introduces change for the better, movement from one state to another, and a season that unfolds magically week after week. Also lots of birthdays in my family, which is cool. And also birds, also cool!
I finally got my eyes on my first Eastern Phoebe of the year, pumping that tail in the cold spring sunshine. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was his first Black-and-White Warbler of the year, carefully searching every crevice in the bark of a large oak tree in Forest Park.
